''Tribalism and Government Effectiveness''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.1 )
This study assesses the relationship between tribalism (the tribalism index) and government effectiveness (per the World Bank) in 60 countries using cross-sectional data. This study finds that countries with high tribal populations generally enjoy bad governance in terms of government ineffectiveness. Government ineffectiveness and tribalism are found to mutually reinforce each other in a robust relationship.
Keywords: Institutions, Tribalism, Government effectiveness
